Spotlight on role of the media

Dawn Gibson
Friday, February 14, 2014

THE media can play a big role in highlighting issues of advocacy and human rights, particularly as a preface to the election.

These issues and more were discussed at a workshop hosted by the Citizens' Constitutional Forum in Suva on Wednesday.

Participant Kasim Nazeem said Fiji needed more forums.

"The whole idea behind the workshop was to map out how different CSOs, NGOs and the media in Fiji can build genuine collaboration and partnership and work together in the lead up to the polls in September," Mr Nazeem said.

He said where the government fell short, it was the role of the media and NGOs to make up for it.
